iPhone 4 Users: The Free Cases Are Here... Order Yours NOW!

This morning, Apple enabled the free case ordering process by making available an iPhone app for placing orders (see http://www.apple.com/iphone/case-program/ for details), but bottom line is this:

  1. In your iPhone 4, open the App Store and search for iPhone Case Program
  2. Download the application
  3. Once the download is completed, click the new icon
  4. You will be prompted to provide your iTunes passwords
  5. Select the type of case you want (your select includes Apple's bumper in black only and a few other full-on cases.  Nothing fancy or colorful).
  6. Confirm the order.
All the options available currently say that shipping will take 3-4 weeks.  I'm not sure if Apple has bumpers and cases for everyone who will order one so hurry and order yours immediately before supplies start running short.  I personally chose the Apple bumper.  I figured that I don't like it, I can always buy a decent case for less than $10, but the bumper is sold (or was selling) for $30 because it's from Apple.

The lucky folks who purchased a bumper (of their choice color) directly from Apple previously should be seeing a refund on their credit cards already.

Update: I just received an Order Acknowledgement from Apple indicating that my bumper will be delivered on Sep 1.  Ouch!!!

Update 2 (7/27/2009): I just received a Shipment Confirmation from Apple indicating that my bumper has already shipped and is expected to arrive on Aug 3.
